A closer look at Bretby

Bretby is a collection of serving pieces with organic shapes and a dappled blue-grey glaze. They’ll add a laidback feel to your table that’s not too rustic, and bring interest to classic white dinner plates and pasta bowls. This wide, shallow serving bowl will hold a large salad or help-yourself pasta dish, and is a good size for a fruit bowl.

The material

Stoneware is a hardwearing type of pottery, which means you can put Bretby in the dishwasher – and even the microwave – and not worry about it getting damaged easily. These are pieces to live with day after day, not tiptoe around.

The glaze

Look closely at Bretby and you’ll see a subtly dappled pattern, like individual stipples across the surface. It’s made by a reaction between the different glazes we’ve applied, exposing some of the layers beneath. The pattern varies in density across each piece, making them all individual.

The colour

As well as the dappled pattern, the reaction in the glazes reveals layers of colour, from off-white through pale blue-greys to a deeper, warmer grey. The larger the piece, the more the glazes react, so these will be slightly greyer as the top layer of glaze is the off-white one.
